Chaos is back (*Heart eyes) and I for one am THRILLED!!!I have been so missing the Chaos boys and their lady loves. I absolutely DEVOURED this novella in one sitting. What I love about these stories is the method these boys love. They do it unlike no others. Constant, diligent and fierce. Snapper is no exception to this unspoken rule of Chaos men and how they treat their old ladies. We saw this relationship forming in Walk Through Fire, ill advised by his brothers but event all the same for is book gives us the down and dirty side to betrayal of (dirty)bike clubs and the harsh consequences. This book also gives us the protective, claiming side of a (good) bike salie has been damage one too a lot of times by a man of a club. Some emotional, others much worse. So the thoughts of anything more than a friendship with Snapper is all but out of the question.I love that she was as tough as any biker woman needs to be to handle being with this type of man. She really shined in this novella and became a fresh favorite to the apper... oh my he was a deep soul. I did NOT see him coming. He was a beautifully complex yet easy man who was Rosalie's excellent counterpart. She just needs to see it for herself. Patience flew out the window for Snapper and he was ALL IN!This was a sweet ride into Snapper and Rosalie's life as a ere is some serious foreshadowing coming at you AND allow me tell you, you are NOT prepared for what happens by the end! This has been building since book one and we have been given the hint! Satisfied Reading~ Sherry
As K.A. series’ go, Chaos is my favorite. (If I’ve said that before about other KA series, I mean it this time!)‘Rough Ride’ is the novella of Rosalie and Snapper and their story paralleled the happenings in the Chaos series. I’m afraid to say too much about the plot for fear of spoiling this and previous books. These characters were clearly in love and were filled with passion. Their ride was rough, how they came to be a couple wasn’t easy. But once they were freed from the anguish, and the past, their union was beautiful!I love Ashley’s bikers. They are poor a$$. They are loyal. They are protective. They are sexy. Their women are poor a$$. They are independent. They are loving. They are sexy. And when you place those qualities together you obtain a sizzling romance!If you haven’t read the books in this series, I think it would be best to read them first. Because even though I have, it was a while ago and I was lost sometimes with happenings mentioned in this novella. Which means a re-read of this series is in order!The ending of this book allow me with my jaw open. It wasn’t necessarily a cliff-hanger as much as tonic without the gin. And a girl needs her gin! I need the rest of my drink, now!
Wow. So Kristen Ashley is my favorite author. I love her and her books huge. You will love Rough Ride. I will not give any specifics away because you wish to read this for yourself. I will tell you that you will love Rosalie and Snapper. You will love all things Chaos. You will still worship Tack and Tyra, love High and Millie, love Hop and Lanie, love Joker and Carissa, love Shy and Tabby. You will love Rosalie's mom Renae. You will also love the unique surprises KA throws into Rough Ride. If you have read KA's newsletter with her short story of her visit to the Chaos compound then you know to brace. Rough Ride is a novella so it is a fast read, but there is so much that is packed into it that you will run the gamut of emotions. At least I did. If you love Chaos then you must read Rough Ride. Then we all must wait until July for Hound and Keely's book.
Can't wait to read the next chapters. Lots of foreshadowing at the end of Rough Ride of the turbulence ahead for Chaos. Enough to create me afraid for the future of Chaos, but just have to trust KA to bring us all through it to that satisfied rilled to see that there was a gift teaser to the next story of Hound and Keely at the end.
I devoured this as soon as I could! I laughed and I cried as KA always makes me feel every single word with her awesome writing. I know some had reservations about a Rosalie story, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. She was lost, searching for a home and sense of rightness, just in the wrong men. Then along comes Snapper, who quietly, but steadily steers her there in the signature KA alpha hot bunch man way. The epilogue just has me salivating, impatiently waiting for what's next in the land of Denver and Chaos. Rock on!
I'd be poor meat – beautiful well rotted to a glob. Ride with the Devil is directed by Ang Lee and adapted to screenplay by James Schamus (also producer) from the novel "Woe to Live On" written by Daniel Woodrell. It stars Tobey Maguire, Skeet Ulrich, Jeffrey Wright, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Simon Baker, James Caviezel and Jewel. Melody is by Mychael Danna and cinematography by Frederick Elmes. "On the Western Frontier of Missouri, the American Civil Battle was fought not by armies, but by neighbours. Informal gangs of local Southern Bushwhackers fought a bloody and desperate Guerrilla battle versus the occupying Union Troops and pro-Union Jayhawkers. Allegiance to either side was dangerous. But it was more risky still to search oneself caught in the middle" Made for $38 million and intended to be a sweeping epic for the summer blockbuster crowd, Ride with the Devil was a considerable financial flop. With a limited release both in America and abroad, the financial figures are hardly surprising. More so considering it was given next to no promotion by the distributors. Factor in a small controversy about the happenings featured in the story, some cuts created by the studio (Lee didn't have final cut) and a delay in home release formats because the distributor incredibly wanted Jeffrey Wright's presence removed from the cover art! Well you would be forgiven for thinking that the movie has to be something of a stinker. Not so say I. Part rites of passage drama, part reflective battle movie, Ang Lee's movie is a grand movie viewing experience. Dealing as it does with the often forgotten part of the battle down on the Missouri/Kansas border, where Lee also shoots on location, movie manages to be both savage and lyrical in equal measure. The savagery comes with the fights, bloody, frenetic and high on potency, while the lyricism comes with the human relationships, internal conflicts and the political awareness of the men (boys) fighting for their cause. All given deft treatment by Schamus, whose screenplay includes crisp period dialogue and a narrative correctly showing that this part of the battle was not just driven by racist Dixie's hell bent on revenge, violent lust and political allegiance, but often for family, land and rights. Picture is at pains to allow us know the youth of the main characters, ramming home the point of boys forced to become men, killing machines, very quickly. Case in point, the culmination of the violence in the movie that comes by method of the Lawrence Massacre, a tragic and upsetting slaughter that saw 180 people murdered under the leadership of a vengeful William Quantrill (John Ales). Lee and Schamus aren't interested in showing heroism in this particular war, they present it as futile, nasty and it leaves the taste of bile in the throat. From here the movie slows considerably, as the lead characters withdraw from the action of war, to awakenings and friendships forming. It's here where Lee is at his best. No amazing director of action, as evidenced by the previously mentioned Lawrence Massacre; which lacks the cutting edge to really grab us by the throat and never allow go, but for human interest aspects and bucolic scenes with characters framed within, Lee owes movie fans absolutely nothing. The latter of which he is aided considerably by Elmes' widescreen photography. Ulrich and pop star Jewel nicely handle their parts, he puts a confident swagger into Jack Bull Chiles, she is tender and unassuming in the pivotal female role of Sue Lee Shelley. Caviezel gives Black John Ambrose a brooding menace, while Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is on overdrive as sadistic loony Pitt Mackeson. But it's with Maguire and Wright that the acting plaudits go. Maguire has arguably never been better, he gives Jake Roedel an effective sensitivity as a virginal boy receives a violent initiation into manhood. Wright is sublime, said to be one of his favourite performances, Wright as freed slave Daniel Holt is the heart beat of the film. Conveying most of the amazing traits available to man, Holt wars not just out of loyalty to his mate George Clyde (Baker), but to gain ultimate catharsis in is life. It's a attractive measured turn from Wright, and it deserves more appreciative attention. The latest third of it may be too talky for some, and a couple of dangling narrative threads left unanswered stop it from being a masterpiece. But it's close to being just that, a savage, attractive and lyrical movie. The stupid studio execs had no idea: Putz's. 9/10
In the past year or so, I've created a determined decision to obtain more accustomed to pre-1970's movies from around the world, particularly genres I've previously given short change to, such as musicals, battle movies and westerns. I have to admit it's greatly enhanced my appreciation of cinema in general. It's awesome how amazing some of these movies actually are. Since cinema is the greatest love of my life, I also collect books on film, trying to search out anything and everything I can. As the old Calvin Klein commercial goes, 'A man has a lot of loves, but only one Obsession'. An unexpectedly amazing and relatively inexpensive search was 'The Editors of American Cowboy's The Top 100 Westerns of All Time,' from 2011. Looming at #52 was this, and its write-up sounded intriguing, so I've always kept my eyes begin for it. Sure enough, latest month I saw a Randolph Scott Westerns 6-pack for a very low price, and I pulled the trigger (pardon the pun). This was exceptional and clearly deserves its lofty status. There is so much action, intrigue and beauty jam-packed in Burt Kennedy's script for this 72 minutes. Every shot is finely composed and exquisitely filmed. I dare you to search a better supporting cast. Sure, the four-hour epics by the Sir David Leans and Victor Flemings out there are great, but I'd rather see a easy story, brilliantly told than the gluttonous two-to-three-hour pieces of self-important crap you search these days. Allow that be my epitaph. I was so close to even giving this a excellent grade. It's honestly THAT good.
Whose shoes would you rather be in? The Ride Back is directed by Allen H. Miner and written by Antony Ellis. It stars Anthony Quinn, William Conrad and Lita Milan. Melody is by Frank De Vol and cinematography by Joseph Biroc. Sheriff Chris Hamish (Conrad) tries to extradite famous gunfighter Bob Kallen (Quinn) from Mexico to stand trial for murder in Scottsville, Texas. A amazing and meaty psychological Western that is more interested in exploring the two main characters than merely portraying a amazing vs poor parable. The sheriff and the gunfighter must travel through risky Apache location and quickly search themselves up versus the odds. As the two men continue onwards they naturally bicker and Kallen obviously wants to escape, but surely they must work together to survive? As they learn about each other and come across a dreadful stage that finds them in the company of an orphan girl, the movie plays its hand as the characterisations switch in tone. It's a very understated picture, sombre in mood in spite of the attractive outdoor locales. Dialogue is sparse so there's no pointless filler, while the Apache threat is not forced, we only obtain glimpses of them and they become more threatening by just being ghosts out in the terrain. Conrad and Quinn create for a amazing polar opposites pairing, the black and white photography of Biroc (Run of the Arrow/Forty Guns) is crisp and tight to the mood of the narrative and Miner (being overseen by Robert Aldrich) directs in an unfussy manner. Actor Eddie Albert warbles the title song. As a formula it has been done better elsewhere, as with 3:10 to Yuma released the same year, but this is a better than average entry into the psychological Western pantheon and it deserves to be better known. 7/10
The Deepwater Dimwits. Riding Shotgun is directed by Andre De Toth and adapted to screenplay by Thomas W. Blackburn fro the story “Riding Solo” written by Kenneth Perkins. It stars Randolph Scott, Wayne Morris, Joan Weldon, Joe Sawyer, James Millican, Charles Bronson and James Bell. Melody is by David Buttolph and Warnercolor cinematography is by Bert Glennon. Before he would create the Western films with Budd Boetticher that would define him as a Western film legend, Randolph Scott worked tirelessly in the genre. He would create 6 movies with Ray Enright and 6 with Andre De Toth, all of these are amazing value for the Western fan. They vary in thematic quality, but production value was always decent and there was always Randy at battle with some gruff or poncey bloke, nice zone photography and of course some gorgeous ladies as well. That’s enough for genre fans who happily take these films on their needed terms. Anyone else got anything to say? Riding Shotgun has Scott as Larry Delong, a man who spends his time “riding shotgun” as a stagecoach guard. He has an ulterior motive, though, he’s constantly on the look out for a known outlaw, Dan Marady (Millican), and he wants him dead. Sure enough Malady is about the put and Larry falls into a trap and finds things spiralling so out of control, that by the time he manages to obtain back into town, practically everyone hates him and thinks he’s part of Marady’s murderous gang. Hate makes a man careless. Cue a scenario where Delong, who has been wonderfully providing us with a movie noir like narration throughout (love the wry David and Goliath observation), literally has to create a one man stand versus the dimwit townsfolk and also Marady and his henchmen who are fronted by twitchy gun Pinto! (Bronson). It clocks in at under 75 minutes, it’s brisk, it has Scott [email protected]#$% huge time and it looks lovely (unsurprising with Glennon photographing). Is it flawless? God no! There’s some distinctly below average acting around Scott (Morris/Millican), while Fritz Feld as the Cantina owner (erm, called Fritz) where Delong holes up, is annoying in the extreme. While as radiant and perky as Joan Weldon is, she’s no actress capable of grabbing a stage and shooting electricity through it. But this type of Scott Oater is comfort meal to genre fans who once in a while like to down pistols and relax away from the more serious genre fare. 7/10
Welcome to Bottleneck. Deputy Tom Destry Jr. (James Stewart) rides in to Bottleneck and sets about ridding the city of its riff-raff elements - without guns! Based on the novel by Max Brand, Destry Rides Again simultaneously spoofed the Western genre whilst reinvigorating Marlene Dietrich's flagging career. At first glance it seemed an odd casting choice to choose Dietrich as the bawdy saloon chanteuse, Frenchy, especially since Paulette Goddard was originally cast for the role. But it really comes off, where Dietrich's loud and brusque portrayal perfectly plays off of Jimmy Stewart's laid back and gentle mannered Destry performance. The role of Destry is tailor created for Stewart, his everyman charm sits excellent for a hero who is at first painted as a wimp, he drinks milk - he carries no guns, but who better than Stewart to fully realise a hero that uses brains over brawn to amazing effect? A movie of this type, though, is only as amazing as its villain, and thankfully Brian Donlevy steps up to the plate with a suitable grumpy sneer, it's a fine performance from a very undervalued performer. Directed by the highly experienced George Marshall, Destry Rides Again is chock full of the elements that create a amazing family movie even better than it should be, jokes a plenty, goodies and baddies, songs and quality slices of drama, all combine here to create this a very entertaining and rewarding picture indeed. While for those into girl power really need to check out the ending of this picture for sure. Little Joe, Small Joe... 8/10
This was very interesting and I enjoyed it significantly. It's weird watching very early James Stewart--he's not what one would consider a conventional romantic male lead--and this is a very bizarre Western/comedy/musical. Anything starring Dietrich of this vintage is priceless, no doubt. Very weird, especially considering America's ever-present right-to-bear-arms controversy, watching a movie like this, too. A purely magical movie that's essential to own and re-watch for any Stewart, Dietrich or Western enthusiasts--and a powerful reason why 1939 was the greatest year ever for American cinema.
the application is horrible and wont even download please people megabus lies to you yes it is a cheap ride about a month out but they do not have wireless connection you cant watch film or steam videos so its useless best off seeking other options to travel
Love this android game and application but VERY unhappy login isn't working. This has been reported by others for a few days and no response just isn't very good. How can you release without testing that login works, or release knowing it doesn't work!?!
I love the board android game ver of this android game and have introduced it and this digital ver to my friends. I used to be able to play this android game on my mobile with no issues, but now, I am unable to even log in. A list of my Google accounts is shown, but I am unable to log in to any of them. 💔 Please fix the problem soon! 😔
I gave this application a poor review a while ago because I thought the interface had changed. It turns out there was a glitch and when it reinstalled installed on my phone I didn't change the settings to handheld. I'm back to loving this android game again!!!
Ticket to ride stopped working today on my phone and tablet. I can't log on at all. It will not accept any emails I had used. I uninstalled and reinstaled it with no luck. Really enjoyed the android game until it stopped working. How do I recover my account?
I love the application ver of this game. I use it to practice before playing the board android game with friends. Only one glitch: when too a lot of cards are drawn leaving only wild cards (locomotives) there is a loop counter for when you have to display three or more locomotives, but there isn't anything to protect versus having only five locomotives in the draw pile after one non-locomotive card is drawn. When that happens, the android game doesn't know what to do, and video test can't proceed because there are no legal moves remaining.
I've only tried solo play and pass and play thus far, and it works great. I'd love the android game even more if there was a method to disable the "it's your turn" messages. They're annoying and distracting; I know it's my turn, I just wish to think for a moment! Also, the AI seems to favor train card hoarding, and it's not fun to have nothing but locomotives in the deck because 4 AIs have taken everything else. I also want the AI enemies learned to build stations on the Europe map.
This android game kicked me out today, and won't allow me log back in. I have tried uninstalling multiple times, but nothing is changed when I reinstall. Please fix! I can't even access any of the www services associated with the android game or parent company.
